Butternut squash has a smooth beige skin with slightly bulbous base. Typically weighing between 2 and 3 lb., this winter squash has an orange-yellow flesh with a sweet, slightly nutty flavor. To prepare, simply cut off both ends of the squash and peel before cutting squash lengthwise in half. Scoop out and discard the seeds and stringy fibers, then cut squash into cubes or slices as desired. If desired, squash can be cut up in advance. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 24 hours before using as desired.
Prepare using fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth.

I have never liked squash but my mother loves all kinds of squash and au gratin. So I decided to cook this for her. I varied the recipe just a bit, I used some organic ingredients . I also used soy flour instead of flour, it takes a little longer to thicken but it works great. I did use low sodium chicken broth, also. It smelled so good I just had to try it. It is so delicious, I am going to make this recipe many times. I loved the sweet of the butternut squash with the butter taste of the cheeses (yes I said cheeses, I used to different kinds) and the right amount of salt with the bacon. This is a receipe that will get kids and adults to eat butternut squash.
This dish really definitely get kids to eat their veggies. The cheese and bacon really disguises the squash so even the pickiest will eat this.
